Linus Pauling Center using Surface Protection from Builders Site Protection

     Builders Site Protection is providing Surface Protection for the new Linus Pauling Science Center at Oregon State University.

The new 105,000-square-foot building will house the Linus Pauling Institute, chemists from the College of Science, and contain classroom and laboratory space for students and researchers studying chemistry, biology, and life sciences.

The $62.5 million Linus Pauling Science Center is OSU's largest-ever academic building project. Funding for the new facility represents a public/private partnership including $31.25 million in state bonds, a $20 million grant from the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, and a gift of $10.65 million from Al Reser '60 and Pat Reser '60. In addition, some 2,600 other donors have made gifts totaling more than $21 million to support the educational and research programs that will be housed in the building.

Scheduled for completion in spring 2011, the facility honors the legacy of Dr. Linus Pauling '22, a pioneering chemist and the only person to win two unshared Nobel Prizes.

Builders Site Protection will be exhibitor at upcoming PCBC show in San Francisco

Builders Site Protection will be an exhibitor at the renowned PCBC show in San Franciso, June 22-24. 

PCBC: The Home of Innovation

The pacific coast has long been defined as one of the great hubs of innovation. From technology to the green movement, the region doesn't just buck trends, it defines the future. Nowhere is this more evident than the building industry, where the community of builders, developers, building scientists, architects, environmental engineers, landscape companies and manufacturers collectively and collaboratively pushes the envelope on what makes up the space we live in. This community is PCBC, which brings its innovative approaches to:

Architectural and design innovation

Environmental and sustainable building practices

The integration of new technologies into homes and the building process

The adoption of a community-centric approach to home building

PCBC was launched in 1959 as a small educational conference at the Sheraton Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Since then, through economic good times and bad, the show has continuously evolved to become homebuilding's most innovative event - a place where the industry's most influential trendsetters gather to share ideas and information.

The economic challenges of the last few years and their impact on the housing sector in particular, have highlighted the importance of innovation both in the market and at the event. By focusing on innovation, PCBC attendees are helping pave the way for a recovery in the housing market.


What is the net impact of PCBC? In a word: inspiration. The inspiration of a community of innovative individuals gathered at their premiere annual meeting. The inspiration generated by motivated professionals learning from category experts and industry leaders. The inspiration of buyers meeting sellers of next generation product innovations. Whether your company sells products that are used in homebuilding, or products designed to enhance the lives of people who occupy those homes, PCBC will provide the inspiration to move your business forward.
